In an accident where an airplane leaks fuel onto the ground, how is it cleaned up?

Depending on the quantity, jet fuel can be cleaned up by use of a sump truck and dry absorbent material or if permitted by the airport and local environmental regulations, the fire department can spray water to wash it down the storm drain.
